According to a new poll, the score is: McCain 47%, Hayworth 42%.
Of note also is this quote:
“McCain has flooded the airways with paid advertisements, and apparently Arizona voters don’t like what he has to say,” Hayworth campaign manager David Payne said Friday in a prepared statement. “Congressman Hayworth’s grassroots campaign and conservative message is being embraced by the people.”
Of course, that’s only one, heavily biased, interpretation. But it is plausible if McCain suffers from anti-charisma. I wonder if that mocking ad his friends released the other day will backfire.
UPDATE: And before anyone gets all offended, the title of this post is not an “incitement to violence“. It’s a metaphor.
